Casa Monica Bridal Portraits {Saint Augustine Wedding Photographer}

Beautiful setting, beautiful bride, beautiful flowers….sounds perfect, right? It gets even better if you also had Beauty by Alison LeeAnnArtistry by Erin, and Creative Jewelry Designs by Laura Staley helping the bride feel and look fantastic! Seriously, I think it helps bring out a woman’s confidence to have hair and make-up professionally done before a photo session. I think no matter what you look like, what size you are, or how you feel about yourself on a day to day basis, being pampered and splurging on yourself really makes a dynamic difference in how you feel and look in pictures!

We were lucky to be able to do this session at the beautiful The Casa Monica in historic St Augustine. The staff is wonderful, so attentive to the guests and visitors. A truly fantastic place to stay if your visiting, to have your wedding, or enjoy a night out at 95 Cordova!

Anything with Plants & Flowers did the bridal bouquet for these portraits. They have been voted number one by The Knot and Wedding Wire, not an easy thing to do! And they do such an amazing job! I’ve been lucky to work with them and cannot wait to see what the next creation will be!


Enjoy the sneak peaks!

Stefanie & Zack are engaged! {St Augustine Engagement Photographer}

Spending the afternoon with a great couple walking around Flagler CollegeHistoric St Augustine, and along the water by the Bridge of Lions {where the Lions were just returned to the bridge!} is not a bad way to spend an afternoon! It was such a fun afternoon and we got some great pictures along the way! Enjoy your sneak peak!


J and N are engaged! {Jacksonville | St Augustine | Orlando Engagement &Wedding Photographer|


I met Miss J a little over a month ago when my  first bride recommended me {so sweet!} to Miss J. Since they are new to Jacksonville, I was tell her about AvondaleRiverside, and San Marco. They spent a day exploring the city and decided they liked the idea of Memorial Park and part of the river walk by The Chart House. It was the perfect setting on the water and a great view of the Jacksonville skyline and brides! We ended the night at The Chart House and a round of fun drinks for the couple!

Enjoy your pics! Looking forward to your wedding!

Mommy mentoring { Mady Joe Photography St Augustine | Jacksonville Lifestyle and Wedding Photographer}

Lately I have been getting the question of “do you offer mentoring” through emails, messages, and conversations. And I have to tell you, I’m really touched! So I’ve been thinking of offering a mommy mentoring day for anyone who has a SLR and just wants to become more comfortable and really learn how to use it. Two days, one of talking and learning and a second day of shooting and utilizing things we just covered. Small groups, nothing overwhelming, and a nice day with the girls!

If you’re interested, email and I’ll pass on the info!

37 weeks and counting….{Riverside | San Marco | Jacksonville Maternity Photographer}

I knew that she is beautiful because I’ve worked with her before, but she is one of those women that just glow and are gorgeous when they’re pregnant!

Check out a sneak peak from our maternity session in San Marco.
